It seems to me you have your life cut out for you without bringing more problems into your situation. Concentrate on being the best and loving mom you can be to your already 3 children. Teach them the best manners and how to deal with others with love and honesty. Feed them continuously with faith, hope and love and encourage them to focus on being a good citizen and
educate themselves. Forget him and don't bring other people into your already full relationship.

Yeah, I can't imagine being in love two months after my husband walked out (it's only been six or so weeks). Even if this guy isn't a player, it sounds like he's just in love with being in love. You have to be careful with people who fall in love so easily.

Please be careful introducing your kids to new men. I grew up in a house with guys coming in and out all the time, and it is not good for the kids. Make sure your kiddos always come first. My husband left, but we've already made it clear that the kids aren't to meet any significant others until it's VERY serious (like, near marriage).

Good luck!

I think your kids are more important than any Man. Seems to me that if it were ment to be things wouldnt be tainted with confusion. Cant trust him now do you think its going to be better later on? You only get one chance to be a mom to growing kids a man can wait . Never pull your kids through your wanting a man, their more imporant than any man. Hope you figure out your problem so your not confused any more.

I would have to agree with the other two ladies. If your "gut" is saying something is wrong its wrong! As a mother of three your gut will be right 99.99% of the time. And my gut is telling me the same things as yours! Best of luck!

If he is saying he loves you after only a month and you are aware of the continued relationship with his ex AND you have second thoughts then it seems apparent that his ideas about love and relationships are not the same as yours. Maybe this is not a healthy situation to be involved in.
